Paper Abstract

From cooperation of multiple mobile robots equipped with different sensor systems for navigation tasks, more accurate localisation estimates can be expected. This paper presents strategies to control within such robot teams relative positions between the vehicles in order to derive by an ultrasonic ranging system also information on locations of robots with limited navigation sensor systems. These algorithms have been tested in experiments with the MERLIN rover hardware.
